A 38-year-old male was admitted to our department with jaundice. Imaging studies including ultrasonography, ERCP, PTC and computed tomography (CT) revealed a hilar lesion. Right hepatic lobectomy, caudate lobectomy, excision of CBD and restoration of biloenteric continuity was performed. Pathological examination showed an icteric hepatoma (1.2 x 0.8 x 0.8 cm in size) originating in the caudate lobe. The tumor thrombus occupied the common hepatic duct and the right intrahepatic duct. The postoperative course was fairly unremarkable, and the patient has remained in good health for four years after surgery without any sign of recurrence.
